Questions & Answers

can you use the previous M12 XC batteries with this tool

Asked by: Will
Yes, you can use all M12 Redlithium batteries with it, including the 1.5 Ah, 2 Ah, 3Ah, and 4Ah models. I used mine with the 1.5 Ah compact batteries, and got a proportional number of 2x4 cross cuts (60) with it as the 170 cuts Milwaukee claims the 4 Ah XC battery will do.

Does it come with a blade if not where and how much are they?

Asked by: Slip
Yes it comes with a thin kerf framing blade. For fine cuts that I want to avoid tearout on, I use a Diablo 36 tooth blade: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Diablo-5-3-8-in-x-36-Tooth-10-mm-Arbor-Finish-Trim-Saw-Blade-D0536X/203162331

Can I use a metal cutting blade on this saw for light duty metal cutting

Asked by: Billy
Yes, using a Finish & Trim blade, those are especially designed for cross cutting and mitering in materials where a very smooth cut is necessary. Also cuts aluminum. Here is the owner's manual. http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/d2/d219929b-46f6-4566-8cbf-88953bf7f116.pdf

M12 FUEL 12-Volt Lithium-Ion 5-3/8 in. Cordless Circular Saw Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This saw is easy and fast. Doesn't cut too deep, but definitely useful far all the small projects... This saw is easy and fast. Doesn't cut too deep, but definitely useful far all the small projects I have planned. The blade it came with was pretty loud, upgrade to one of the Diablo blades, that thing is silent. The two put together makes an amazing tool to use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good saw if you have your needs Streight I bought this saw because I am heavily invested in the m12 line I actually have been waiting for this to come out all year and when it came out I ordered it right away waited a month or two to actually use the saw so I'm not reviewing something I know nothing about and just excited for. All in all this saw can get the job done but in no way should it serve as your primary circular saw the included blade is basically useless couldn't even cut through a piece of line board with out it getting jammed from not having enough power. I honestly thought it was the saw at first but when I changed the blade boy was I wrong now it cuts I wouldn't say effortlessly but it will not get caught and stuck it'll get through the cut without a jam. Battery life not that great even with the xc 4.0 but I have 5 or 6 of them so not a problem for me Overall I would recommend if 1 you don't plan on this being your primary saw and 2 you have a bunch of batteries otherwise I wouldn't buy it Also keep in mind not easy to find a variety of blades this size

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw for the size and weight, great for most projects. Light weight, lots of power for it's size. Perfect for medium to small jobs.
Date published: 2015-04-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So incredible light and useful Love this saw. Very light but still powerful enough to do plenty of jobs. I also like having the extended 12 volt battery which should help this thing last a little longer. I am not sure how long the saw will last with continuous use but I did not buy it for that. I have a corded circular saw for those jobs. This saw will be used for odd jobs or light duty projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, an M12 circular saw Don’t let the size of this circular saw fool you. It easily makes light work of 2x4s, and its light weight is perfect for using anywhere in the home or on the job site . You can adjust the depth of the cut with a simple lever, and the same is true for adjusting the bevel (which goes up to 50 degrees). Changing blades is super simple using the included hex wrench. The wrench stores on the frame of the saw when not in use, which means it is always at hand. A super bright LED illuminates the work piece as you disengage the safety lever, a nice touch that makes hitting the mark so much easier in any lighting conditions. Whether cutting sheeting, baseboards, or 2x4s, this circular saw does it all. I’m heavily in vested in the M12 and M18 range from Milwaukee, so I have lots of batteries on hand. The manufacturer claims 170 cuts per charge , so even without a spare battery, you are going to have enough runtime for even the most demanding jobs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent 12V Milwaukee Saw. Milwaukee has really done an excellent job on all of their M12 Fuel lineup of tools. The M12 Circular Saw, like all of the M12 tools, is light, well designed to fit your hands, and shockingly powerful for a 12V tool. Battery life was as advertised, enough power for the cuts I needed. The full kit, (battery, charger, and nice bag) was by far the best deal but was disappointed HomeDepot didn't carry this version of the product in store. HomeDepot however shipped the kit to my door in 2 days. One thing to note, I had to order all of the 5-3/8 IN blades from other online sources. Currently at my 2 or 3 local HomeDepots they didn't carry a single blade in the 5-3/8 size. They did have several at 5-1/2 which the manual says will work but I've not tried that size yet.
